Daniel Johnson Makes Jamaica Debut

14 November 2020

Midfielder Daniel Johnson made his international debut for Jamaica on Saturday evening.

The Reggae Boyz played Saudi Arabia in the first of two friendlies between the two sides during this international break, and Johnson was named in the starting Xl for the game, his first appearance for the national side.

The hosts took an early lead from the penalty spot just ten minutes in to the game, and then just a few minutes before half-time they added a second.

DJ played over an hour on his debut, making way for Michael Hector on 70 minutes, before the hosts scored a third with just over ten minutes to play.

Jamaica are back in action again on Tuesday as they face Saudi Arabia again before Johnson travels back to England to join up with the PNE squad ahead of a return to Championship action at Deepdale on Saturday.

Elsewhere on the international stage, Republic of Ireland are in Nations League action against Wales on Sunday, with North End forward Sean Maguire in the squad and he could feature for Stephen Kenny's side.

Alan Browne will be unavailable for Ireland's remaining games during this international break after testing positive for Covid-19.
